Location is great and the staff were very nice. Rooms are basic but clean and comfortable. I was only in town for one night and this hotel was great for a short trip.
There was a lot of street noise if your room faces Geary. They did provide ear plugs on the night stand which was thoughtful.
Loved the location of the hotel to the Bart station and Union square. Very accomodating and friendly staff.
A newer air conditioner, I've heard they are not needed much and it was unseasonably warm when I was there.
Quick access to SF center, proximity to all important places and public transport. You can save money for hop-on-hop-offs by simply walking or using SF buses.
Noise due to outdated windows, outdated furniture, smell on corridors, small room, poor TV channel selections, outdated bathroom.
Close to union square Great wifi Helpful staff Great room rates Free ear plugs( needed) Great bed
The room was clean, cozy, perfect for my needs.

no air-conditioning in the room. It was good when I stayed it's already chilly at night
I was given a really quiet room the overlooked an internal shaft. This made the room rather dark and there was no view, but it was really quiet as a result, so great for me and really unusual in a city centre. The staff will apparently give you a view or a quiet room depending on what you want if you ask. They were very helpful in telling me where to find stuff. The WiFi worked OK, which was another nice surprise. They also let me check in early and organised a ride to the airport for me. I think I'll stay there again next time I'm in town. A really good budget hotel.
Small but clean room friendly staff very central
Quiet expensive for what you get
the location is perfect. very close to union square. stuffs are nice and friendly.
the mattress was too soft. it was a bit uncomfortable.
Noisy at night
Staff was very helpful and attentive. I actually like the quaint rooms. I wasn't there long and it was exactly what you pay for. It was a place for my bags and it was so centrally located. I highly recommend this hotel for those with little budget.
location safe clean friendly helpful staff
no aircon city centre location so a bit noisy
kindness, sense of humor of the receptionist
ALL facilities, cleanliness, temperature, comfort, price, quality of sleep !!!
Good location. friendly staff
Whilst rooms were clean they could do with some updating. Even a lick of paint would help. not really hotels fault but if in room close to alleyway expect to be woken around 6 when refuge collectors start emptying bins
Staff Interesting restaurant next to it Location
Price Tiny rooms
- location - good breakfast restaurant next to hotel (with discount!)
- room was small, next to elevator - badroom was pretty old, but all worked
-Extremely pleasant hotel staff, who were always ready to help -Excellent location -Great value for your money -Very clean
-The area was fairly noisy and it was difficult to sleep in in the morning due to nearby construction.
Rude staff, dirty rooms, would not recommend
Nothing fancy about this hotel, but it was clean and the service (and location) is excellent. We chose the room over the street which made for a noisy night, but our toddler loved watching the business of everything below. If you are looking for doing San Francisco inexpensively, but still be treated respectfully, this is a great place to stay.
Great location near Union Square. Tons of restaurants in walking distance. The room was updated recently enough. Staff let me check in almost 4 hours early without question. Even if they hadn't been able to check me in, I saw that they had no problem holding bags for other travelers and ensuring they were set up with travel accommodations and other useful info.
Street noises made it very difficult to sleep. The hotel provides earplugs, but Geary can be a pretty noisy street at early hours.
The price and location.
It was tiny, which wasn't a problem for us but I could see how it could be a problem for people looking for more spacious accommodations. You're definitely not going to find them at this price though.
If your just looking for a place to sleep this is a good hotel for a clean, nights sleep with a great location & value. Wouldn't stay here if looking for a place to kick back & relax, but SF keeps you busy anyways.
Small room, no extra amenities like mini fridge in room, in room coffee/ tea & even no coffee/tea available in lobby & no Ice on floor or in hotel that we could find.
Friendly and helpful front desk staff. Excellent location. Wifi speed OK
Basic rooms and amenities
We had a room above Geary Street, and the noise on the street below was too much. Even with a sound machine and ear plugs I could hear honking and braking all night. The back rooms were probably fine.
